Svetlana’s sending on a chain mail has consequences.
Eva: You included my name in that chain letter, and the amount of spam in my mailbox jumped.
Svetlana: Coincidence, surely?
Eva: Explain this. I haven’t had anything but spam in Spanish for months, and not 24 hours after you put my email on your chain letter, I start getting spam from Nigeria and Belgium and, get this, from Germany.
Svetlana: You are German, no?
Eva: I get this email from a woman called Anina Buss. She claims to know me. She offers to go into business with me.
Eva: Where does she find out my email? Why does she know things about me?
Svetlana: What business does she suggest?
Eva: Vitamin pills.
Svetlana: Vitamin pills are good.
Eva: Vitamins to enhance language learning? Con.
It could be a con. But it could also be Svetlana playing a joke on Eva.
